Ian Hopkins founded Pool Spa & Filtration (Pty) Ltd with a vision of providing global-standard technology and superior quality supplies to the local fountain, pool and pond design industry. Ian’s hands-on approach to management and values-driven leadership style are the reasons why, 37 years later, the Pool Spa Group has established itself as the leader in fountain technology, maintenance and supplies, not only in South Africa but into Africa and beyond.
2017 has been an exciting year as the dynamic duo of Brian Algar and Rossella Grimaldi took the wheel, entrusted with steering the Group safely through its next growth phase. Rossella Grimaldi says, “Our fresh look, improved efficiencies and a higher level of customer service embraces change without sacrificing the founding values.” Brian Algar agrees, then adds, “Our clients will feel the difference in our approach, not only in our re-energised service levels, but where it counts – the bottom line.”
Working hand in hand with landscape architects, the high-tech displays of water, lights and music at Monte Casino, Silverstar Casino, Menlyn Mall and The Mall of Africa, to name a few, showcase the technological design and installation skills of the PoolSpa & Filtration Contracts team. The maintenance division keeps South Africa’s pools and ponds in sparkling condition. “We do what we do to sustain the smiles,” says Grimaldi. Pool Spa & Filtration Supplies, the retail arm and the store, based in Randburg, is stocked with leading brands and top-quality products, at Rand-friendly prices.
